    We had a wonderful meal at McKendrick's. The service was some of the best I've received. Very attentive without being intrusive or too much. Everything came in a amount reasonable time, the temperature it should be. The service staff met all our needs and anticipated them. The food was very good. They even provided a complimentary desert when they overheard we were celebrating a Birthday. The atmosphere was peaceful without being somber, vibrant without being noisy.

    Love McKendrick's. Service and food are usually always top notch. Server was very knowledgeable. My only complaint is the noise level. It's always lively and when you're sitting at a large round table, it's difficult to hear others you're dining with.

    Rather a disappointing place for a birthday celebration. Our first waiter was aloof, cold and not the least bite engaging…not that we needed him to be our friend…but at least pretend you wanted to wait us. After informing the restaurant manager of the situation, they sent over a waiter I sure they thought would be a perfect fit since we were all of the same ethnicity, therefore, felt he could over familiarize himself with us with his head snapping and finger popping gestures. We left the restaurant…feeling so very unsatisfied. A complete waste of what could have been an enjoyable evening.

    Always a consistent high quality cut of beef is provided at McKendrick's! From the moment you walk in the door the openly friending staff makes you feel welcomed and appreciated. This is a traditional steak house with all the trimmings. Excellent service and well informed wait staff in helping you select the perfect steak for you and match it to a great wine. Don't let the shopping center exterior fool you, this is the real deal steakhouse locals have known for years

    We enjoyed our meal once again. A couple of small things could have made it better. Apparently they no longer have the Kansas City Strip and the bread pudding was not as good as it has been - maybe it needed to be warmed. Our server was great - as usual. I did find that although I booked it as a 1,000 points table, we only received 100 points. I am investigating....

    McKendrick's Steakhouse is thw scene for those who are at least 50 years old. The food is much too overpriced for the portion they serve and the chef likes to keep all the meat as uncooked as possible. (A well done steak will still have a pink center) The food was pretty good though although not really worth it. The booth was very loud, so was the overall restaurant. Who knew elderly people could make so much noise. However, the service was great. Mark "Dods" was very helpful and made the dining experience much more enjoyable than it would've been. I would probably not go for a second time but I highly recommend it to very wealth senior citizens!

    We generally choose McKendricks for special celebrations. With all the well rated steak places in town, we still find them to be the best. Steaks are always perfect. And that lobster mac'n cheese is so delicious! We brought our own special bottle of wine, and the waiter did not charge us a corkage fee. (Maybe because it was hubby's birthday?). Either way we were pleased with that. We enjoy very nice wine and have plenty of our own so we would rather bring ours. We don't mind a corkage fee but it's always nice if they don't have one, or if it's not ridiculous. The only thing I would say is that our waiter was very stoic. Maybe just his personality. He never smiled once. But he did provide good service so I guess that's what matters.

    This is a basically a good, competent restaurant, but our most recent experience was hit and miss. Salads were great, but my wife had the Fried South African Lobster tails for $16.95 each and they was maybe 2 oz. of meat on each one. They looked ridiculously small. Unfortunately they were also very dry/overcooked. Wine by the glass pours were uneven. One was a full 6 oz. pour, the other was maybe 4 oz., but they filled up the smaller one when I showed them the difference. My salmon was delicious. Salted Carmel Gelato with Bacon sounded great, but we had to send it back. It was cloyingly sweet, too salty and didn't seem fresh. Just too many missteps for super premium prices being charged. Service was okay, but not warm & fuzzy.

    The hubbie wanted to go here for dinner. Wait staff was wonderful, attentive enough without being distracting. Salmon was perfect, some of the freshest fish I have eaten in quite some time. Hubbies said his steak was perfect. Lobster mac to die for. Birthday dessert was heavenly, oreo crust two flavors gelato with snicker topping - yum! Only downside was this restaurant is on the loud side not really a place for romantic dinner could tell Monday night was the business man special!

Many times you wonder if you getting what you pay for. I would have to say "Yes". Special occasions or just treat some you care about. For a 5 star experience McKendrick's every time.

Great food, great waiter, great place all around just great. I had the Mero Sea Bass, melted in my mouth and my husband had the traditional steak, it was cooked perfectly.
